CHANNA CHAAT AND 50TH POST

Although I started this blog of mine in 2009 and it was going at a good pace too but other important aspects of life took over and I had to eventually stop blogging. Now, it seems like everything is in place so I have decided to start blogging again and the holy month of Ramadan is the best time to get a fresh start. 


For Iftar (time to breakfast)  few delicacies are a must have at Iftar table in every household in Pakistan. Channa chaat is one such item which one will surely find in everyone's Iftar menu. Here comes my version of this spicy, tangy snack which is going to be a part of Iftar party at Lubna's Yummy food for her Ramadan event and Iftar nights  hosted by jabeen.


CHANNA CHAAT :









INGREDIENTS:



WHITE CHICKPEAS/KABLI CHANNA    1 CUP BOILED
SMALL RED ONION FINELY SLICED     HALF                            
GREEN CHILLI FINELY CHOPPED        1 SMALL
TOMATO FINELY SLICED                   1 SMALL
LEMON JUICE                                   2 TSP
TAMARIND PASTE/IMLI                      2 TBSP
CHAAT MASALA                                TO TASTE
CORIANDER LEAVES                          FOR GARNISH

STEPS OF PREPARATION:


1. Wash and soak Chick peas in enough water overnight.


2. Next day pressure cook chicpeas/channa with salt and enough water. Alternatively boil in any pot till chickpeas soften.


3. Strain and take out in a bowl, combine all the above ingredients.


4. Let it sit for a while so that chickpeas/channa gets all the flavours of imli, lemon, chaat masala.


5.Enjoy having yummy chaat at home.
